Missed a pill will i get pregnant

Patient: I have been on the contraceptive pill for over 3 years now however i forgot to take it one day this week so i took it as soon as i remembered plus the one for that day (so 2 in one day) however 2 days later (last night) i had unprotected sex with my partner. Will i get pregnant? Should i go to the chemist and get an emergency contraceptive pill just incase?

 

 

Doctor: Since you have missed only one tab and took two the next day you remain protected. You need not worry.
